Make sure to do this first. It would be nice if he driver would narrate the journey instead of relying on a CD but he did make a few informative notes.

This is a so-so tour, it's prerecorded, every now and then the driver will add sometime about the tour, but I could hear him as I was in the back of the trolley. There was some good info on the recording.

Interesting tour and staff were informative and friendly. Takes about 1 hour so plan accordingly; if you have plans to see the gunfight at the museum DO NOT ask the guide to go back early so your kids can see the gunfight (like someone did on our tour).

The trolley was good. The information is prerecorded and the trolley must stay on schedule. Most information is about Fort Dodge and the meat processing plant. It does not give much of the history of the City of Dodge. It was interesting to know that for many years Dodge tried to shed its "violent" history. I am afraid it is... More

The Trolley tour was very informative about the characters and history of Dodge City. There was a taped narrative with a read along booklet. The driver was very friendly and added little stories and additional information at times. I think it was well worth the money. Tour lasted about an hour.

This is a great trip, take it when you come to Dodge, a lot of history. You get a good overview of how Dodge came about and what it is today

This is called a trolley, but really seemed like a bus with really hard wood bench seats. There is some interesting history here, but the trip is a bit long and boring. At least it is air conditioned. There is a recorded narrative given during the trip, but a more personal one by the driver would be my preference. If... More

Unlike some trolley tours this was not hop on hop off but instead an hour tour that gave you a good background to both the history and the present important events of Dodge City.

Disappointed that it didn't see more. Like maybe Windthorst Church the Cathedral is interesting too, House of Stone also.

Thank You so much for your comments. We'd love to get our guests out to all the surrounding communities, you are right, the Church in Windthorst is very beautiful! Unfortunately with the time allowed for the tour, we can't get there and back and offer all the other things there are see on the tour. We hope to be able... More
